The issue is..........
Our tax money should be used to help us out,,,,,,,,,,,
Not the Africans, Asians, Middle Eastern's, or any other non US citizen.........
What is the problem with that?
Is it ok to tax the crap out of us and then turn a cold shoulder when we are in need?
But we sure will send billions to Israel
Without the fed, we would be flourishing.
The United States of America (also called the United States, the U.S., the USA, America, and the States) is a federal constitutional republic comprising fifty states and a federal district. The country is situated mostly in central North America, where its forty-eight contiguous states and Washington, D.C., the capital district, lie between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, bordered by Canada to the north and Mexico to the south. The state of Alaska is in the northwest of the continent, with Canada to the east and Russia to the west, across the Bering Strait. The state of Hawaii is an archipelago in the mid-Pacific. The country also possesses several territories in the Pacific and Caribbean.
The federal government of the United States is the federal government of the constitutional republic of fifty states and one district that is the United States of America. The federal government comprises three distinct branches of government: a legislative, an executive and a judiciary. These branches and their various powers are delineated in the U.S. Constitution; the powers are specified in greater detail in laws enacted by Congress.
The United States government is based on the principle of federalism, in which power is shared between the federal government and state governments. The details of American federalism, including what powers the federal government should have and how those powers can be exercised, have been debated ever since the adoption of the Constitution. Some make the case for expansive federal powers while others argue for a more limited role for the central government in relation to individuals, the states or other recognized entities.
So Ron Paul is taking # because he said it's not the Governments responsibility to help people who lost homes because of the Tornadoes.
But why give him #? If you're house burns down, is it his fault?
If you live in a flood zone, is it Ron Paul's fault?
So why would people think it's the President's responsibility to bail out the tornado victims?
GET SOME #ING INSURANCE if you live in Tornado zones or flood zones, etc. WTF people?
